The Scottish Youth Parliament (SYP) represents all of Scotland’s young people. Our vision for Scotland is of a nation that actively listens to and values the meaningful participation of its children and young people. Our goal is to make this vision a reality, in order to ensure Scotland is the best place in the world to grow up.
Throughout the second half of 2015, and early in 2016, Members of the Scottish Youth Parliament (MSYPs) worked with their local authority and/or national voluntary organisation team to ensure as many young people (aged 12-25) as possible were consulted. Every week, MSYPs worked tirelessly at events in schools, community centres, colleges, universities, shopping centres, and other venues across Scotland, to capture the views of young people.
This consultation exercise gives us the clearest mandate we have ever had to accurately represent the views of all of Scotland’s young people.
